JMF Properties’ newest residential community, Clarus Glen Ridge, is nearing completion, with a July grand opening expected, the developer announced on June 1.

Located on Baldwin Avenue in Glen Ridge, just steps from downtown Montclair and New Jersey Transit’s Bay Street train station, Clarus Glen Ridge is a collection of 110 modern rental residences and top-scale amenities.

“We are excited to announce that we will soon be introducing a brand-new residential option to this charming, historic Essex County borough with the launch of leasing at Clarus Glen Ridge,” JMF Properties founder and Principal Joe Forgione said. “Glen Ridge is the perfect location for the newest addition to our Clarus series of luxury rental properties. You can walk to shops, restaurants, parks, cultural attractions and mass transit in downtown Montclair, but when you walk home you return to a quiet, relaxed suburban neighborhood, completely insulated from the hustle and bustle. A lot of thought went into customizing every single detail of this community and we are counting the days until we can officially announce its debut.”

Clarus Glen Ridge was designed to provide its residents a luxury lifestyle experience that incorporates the best aspects of urban and suburban living. It will soon offer renters a selection of one- and two-bedroom residences with features that go well above and beyond what is typically offered in modern luxury rental communities.

JMF’s elevated take on sophisticated living is particularly evident in the gourmet kitchens at Clarus Glen Ridge, where renters will enjoy features such as a gas range with Faber Cristal Collection vented hood, quartz countertops with undermount stainless-steel sinks, European-style, two-tone cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances.

Additional details found throughout the homes include 9-foot ceilings, energy-efficient LED light fixtures, 7-inch composite plank floors, in-unit washer and dryer, oversized windows with custom shades, a high-performance heating and cooling system, and spa-like baths with marble floors, walls and accents. Den units and private outdoor space will be available in select homes.

Amenities at Clarus Glen Ridge also include a wellness center with state-of-the-art exercise equipment and a separate personal training studio as well as a central lobby and lounge with hospitality-inspired finishes and a two-sided fireplace, reading lounge, parlor with gas fireplace and wet bar, business center, theater room, and billiards room with vintage billiards table. Plus an outdoor courtyard with seating areas, firepit, grills and more.

Clarus Glen Ridge is the second community by JMF Properties to carry the “Clarus” brand name. Its predecessor, Clarus Maplewood, is a multiple award-winning community that captured the 2018 “Community of the Year” honors for mixed-use communities from the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association, and is the first community in New Jersey to earn the prestigious WELL Certification – Gold Level by the International WELL Building Institute.

Prospective renters are invited to join the luxury community’s waitlist here. Those on the list will be among the first invited to take a private tour of the building and the first to receive information on the community’s grand opening prices.
